In a time of rapid technological change, in a world of advancing populism, of trials and tribulations between lies and revelations, and the fear of wars and climate catastrophes, the potential inherent in the individual wish deserves all the more attention. For the change of grievances does not begin with acquired knowledge and certain skillsets, but first and foremost with the desire to change something. For this reason, the Museum Angewandte Kunst invites visitors to the exhibition Ingrid Godon. I wish and thereby enter a space of possibility that not only bears the potential to reflect on one's own wishes, but above all creates atmospheres for events and processes that encourage discussion and self-determination.

The selected illustrations by the internationally renowned artist Ingrid Godon serve as the starting point for this reflection. Together with texts by award-winning poet Toon Tellegen, Godon’s images of the faces of serious children, wistful men and thoughtful women open a door for our imagination. For the entire duration of the exhibition, the site-specific sound installation sound 48H silence by d.o.o.r (Oona Kastner and Dirk Raulf) transforms the architecture of the Museum into a sound body itself, culminating in a 48-hour live performance with well-known international musicians on the last weekend of the exhibition.

Between the wall illustrations and originals by the Belgian artist, a diverse range of sounds, music, performances and workshops invite visitors to explore, linger and wander. The entire Museum is transformed into a lively and pulsating, but also quiet and contemplative Open House. El Barrio offers concerts, live sets, selected menus, a pop-up cinema and a bar landscape. The Museum's Create department invites you to performances in the fields of dance and spoken word as well as workshops from different educational institutions such as the Bildungsstätte Anne Frank.

To the exhibition

YACHT (an acronym for “Young Americans Challenging High Technology”) is Claire L. Evans, Jona Bechtolt, and Rob Kieswetter. For their latest LP, Chain Tripping, the trio invented their own working method at the intersection of DIY and high-tech: they used neural networks to generate raw musical data from their prior work, which they arranged into new songs that they then learned, performed, and recorded live. Rather than rely on a single tool, they brought together several distinct AI processes: text generation (Char-RNN), latent space interpolation, raw audio generation (SampleRNN), and a “neural synthesizer” called the NSynth. They were inspired by the long history of generative composition, from William S. Burroughs’ cut-up writing to David Bowie’s custom “Verbasizer” software from the ‘90s.

Ticket prices will be listed on the museum webiste shortly.
